Description: Stretching out along the mesa from west to east is the half-mile long linear accelerator, the heart of LANSCE. This high-intensity proton accelerator powers LANSCE's many experimental facilities including the Lujan Neutron Scattering Center and the Weapons Neutron Research (WNR) Facility. In the last five years, LANSCE's contributions to national security have become increasingly important, including proton radiography movies of dynamic events, nuclear data on short-lived isotopes, and materials science data for determining weapon component lifetimes. During the same period, the number of external users contributing to international science has nearly tripled.
